Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named was approved into GLAS 3 with a contract commencement date of 1 January 2017 and has received payments in respect of 2017.

Administrative checks involving a number of sections within the Department take place on all GLAS claims. All cases must clear validation checks before payment can issue. This case has not yet cleared the required validation checks. Once this case clears validations the 2018 advance payment will be made. GLAS payments are issuing on a weekly basis.
